Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.
The lovely banner was made especially for me by Amanda at Faery Ink Art & Design when I won her first blog challenge. You can buy the black and white version of Granmargaret Fairy at

Whoopsi Daisy challenge - Anything but a card

The Whoopsi Daisy challenge this week is Anything but a card.
http://cutedaisymay.blogspot.com.au/
I have done a scrapbook page
I have printed out a Whoopsi Daisy digi stamp Cutie 1 which was a past freebie.   Linnie every so often adds a freebie to her stamp blog http://linnie-whoopsiedaisy.blogspot.com.au/ you just have to follow her blog to find them when she adds them for a short time.  I layered Cutie onto one of Imagine That "Farmyard" digi papers.  Added some photos of my youngest grand daughter, Brianna age 5 with different animals.  Printed Title on computer and layered on top.  Added cat, dog and rabbit brads.
I had some better cat brads but couldn't find them when I was doing the page.  Found them the next day, too late.

I hope you will go over and have a look at the lovely projects by the other members of the design team and join in the challenge.  You don't have to use a Whoopsi Daisy image but if you do and you are the winner you will received 2 sheets of Whoopsi Daisy images (4 on a sheet).  If you don't and you are the winner you will receive 1 sheet of images.

I would also like to enter this into A Gem of a challenge - use black (black cat in 1 photo, Brianna wearing a black T shirt in another photo plus black on brads, and black on the horses on the paper.

I didn't know any hippies in the 60s.  I started work in 1960 when I was 16.  In later 60s we had rockers and surfies in Sydney.  
I scanned a few photos from the 60s and made a very quick scrapbook page.  I have to find the album with the later 60s photos when the mini skirt came in.

Photos layered over Pink Gem designs Champagne Lace paper.

1968 October with Mum and Dad after Sunday School Anniversary (I used to teach Sunday School class)
1969?  With Tony who was then my fiance and my nephew 
1969 4 October at my best friends Patricia and Ian's wedding.  
Sadly she died from an asthma attack in 1972 when her daughter was 2 and her son 4 weeks old.


 1969 Our wedding 1 November (Tony didn't have a beard then)
 1969 1 November at our wedding with Mum and Dad.
Unfortunately the professional photos weren't very good, I was so disappointed.   We used the same company as my sister used in 1968 and hers were much better.
The two people we had asked to take colour photos as we couldn't afford the professional ones had problems with their cameras so we only have a couple of small coloured photos.
